Great White Crashes Tuna Party
Shark in Tuna PenResearchers in Australia studying tuna feeding habits have learned something about shark feeding habits, instead. A great white shark, 13 feet long and weighing some 1,500 pounds, somehow invited itself into the tuna's pen. Scientists at the South Australian Research Development Institute believe it either chewed through the bottom of the fence, or leapt over the top. Once inside, it swam contently around the pen, but the tuna were not so calm. "When the shark swims to the surface the tuna swim to the bottom of the net and vice versa," a spokesman said. Researchers used a net to funnel the shark out through the underwater gates, but not before two of the one hundred or so tuna had disappeared.
